Published AthenaPlus D3.1 The MINT ingestion platform


The main objective of this deliverable, edited by the National Technical University of Athens, is to describe the MINT ingestion platform presenting its architecture and the technologies used for its implementations. Additionally, the MINT workflow is explained and detailed user instructions for every MINT procedure are provided. The role of MINT in AthenaPlus project is to assist content providers in the transformation of their in house metadata to Europeana Data Model and their publication to Europeana. MINT development has started by NTUA from the ATHENA ingestion server and evolved through other Europeana feeder projects like Linked Heritage, EuScreen and ECLAP. MINT addresses the ingestion of metadata from multiple sources, the mapping of the imported records to the intermediate metadata schema and the transformation and storage of the metadata in a repository.
